Today is Bastille Day in France. Therefore, I want to add another item to your list of amazing sites to see: The Bastille Day fireworks over the Eiffel Tower from the Hyatt Etoile.
Why the Etoile?
The Etoile is the tallest hotel in Paris (and just about the tallest building) and is only 1 story under the tower itself.
From the Tower view rooms, last year the fireworks were not only amazing to see, they were literally coming AT us. From the open (!) window we could see not only the ones over the Eiffel Tower but at least 5 other sets as well. The quirky soundtrack, provided on public television, only enhanced the experience with LMFAO and Nirvana, U2 and Madonna.
While for fireworks this year in Baltimore for the 4th were lovely nothing will compare to the Etoile on Bastille Day. On a related note, high up in a hotel room will be our modus operandi for fireworks from now on.
I know bloggers rave about the Vendome (and regular readers know I’m anti-Vendoming in every sense), but for both value and scope the Etoile is a much better choice for families. It’s half the price on points and reasonable cash rates come up regularly. Their suites are comically large- it’s a brilliant place to use a suite upgrade or just book a suite on points.
Have you another fireworks recommendation? Please share in the comments.
